I have installed Firefly and set it to run as a user with accompaying password. My media files are on a network share \DISKSRVMusic which requires a password to log in.
Everything works smoothly, in principle. The only annoyance is that I need to log into my Windows account, and double click on the Firefly icon in the tray, then manually start the firefly server. Of course I have set the service to start automatically, but for some reason that does not happen. What could be wrong?
Thanks – problem solved. I checked the EL as suggested and found that the Bonjour service was hanging during boot. It may or may not be related to my disabling the CCAPP service (Symantec antivirus component). It may, however, also be that my installation of Bonjour was somehow broken. I have downloaded a new copy from Apple and installed it on top of the old one.
Regardless what was the cause, things are working as expected now.
If I have time, I will try to turn off ccapp.exe again and see if that was the real reason. Ccapp in Symantec Internet Security 2005 (which is the version I have) has a flaw that causes the CPU to run at 99% for (it seems) forever. I have not been able to find a solution for this – but thats a completely different story…
Anyway – thanks for the prompt response and direction to a diagnostic.
PS: Without CCAPP it is not possible to browse to secured websites (https://….)
